Hello and welcome to my study abroad blog!  I hope this blog will detail my semester in Nantes, France.  I have been preparing this summer for my semester and I am excited to start my blog.

I think this is a good time to start because I recieved an email from my host family yesterday!  I am so relieved to know where I will be staying and I am now that much more excited for my trip!

I got my visa and plane tickets, all that’s left to do is to pack! And speaking of packing, I bought a new suitcase this morning. Hopefully it’s big enough to transport my life across the ocean…
